i cant get my jeep to shift into 4wd. when i look under the jeep at the linkage while some one trys to move the shifter the linkage seems to get stopped or jammed. the shifter moves and then stops about a inch before it usually goes when shifting into 4wd like its hitting a wall or something. where could i start to look to resolve this problem?
To me it sounds like it is binding up. Liberally soak all of the the linkages with PB blaster, or Kroil and let it work in for a hour or so. Also unbolt the inner and outter shift boots to ensure they are not jamming it up. Sometimes I need to have my XJ rolling forward a little to get my shifter for 4wd to engage or disengage
So a new bolt and filled the fluid I know there is going to be some damage to the Tcase but a replacement is not in the budget at the moment. On the plus side the Tcase works better then it ever has in the past for me but only owned the jeep for a short while.
